Hello and thanks for your question. 

During the Fall and Spring semesters, the Healey Library's Reference Desk, 4th floor, is staffed by full-time reference assistants Monday-Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm. 

In addition we sometimes have student reference assistants staffing this desk, Monday-Thursday during some hours after 5:00pm.  These hours are variable, due to changes in availability of student workers and variability in demand for student labor elsewhere in the Library.  (Please note, reference desk coverage does not extend after 5:00pm on Fridays.  The building closes at 6:00pm on Fridays.)  

On weekends, we have no workers (full-time or student) at the Reference Desk.  But one of our weekend supervisors at the Circulation Desk is a librarian and can assist with research questions.  Weekend hours at that desk (and the whole Library) are Saturday 9:00am-3:00pm and Sunday 11:00am-5:00pm.
